Review by: TAMMY HUDSON on March 01, 2014 :
This was overall good book. This book was about Zeke Clay who was down on his luck and he receives a letter that could change his luck if he can break a curse on the family he did not realized he had and give him a new start with a huge inheritance.
What I liked was Zeke having to solve this mystery and realized he needs God in his life to help him along the way. What I did not like was this is supposed to be christian fiction but has ghost in it. I know this is fiction but it is called Necromancy and it is strictly forbidden by God it is trafficking with demons. Also after someone takes there own life they can not be forgiven for it is too late. I know some may see this as nitpicking but this is my opinion.

This book had my attention and held it! It follows Zeke Clay who has a terrible day when it first begins: quitting school, losing his girlfriend, and getting laid off of work. He has no where to go until he gets a mysterious letter and a summons to a lawyers office.

Deciding he's got nothing to lose, he drives from Texas to Colorado. What he finds there is a something that wasn't expected - an inheritance from a man who claims to be his Uncle (with a few greats attacked). But there is one condition, he must break the family's curse.

The curse comes attached with restoring true love and even though Zeke doesn't want to believe in it, he cannot deny the truth of the story and how it relates to his life.

Okay, first off, let me say, well done Mrs. Donovan for bringing out the faith in a paranormal novel. It isn't easy to that, and despite having to bend a few rules regarding ghosts and the Bible, it was absolutely well done. And, this is fiction, so I'm not complaining. It was plausible, and in my fiction, that's what I like. I want it to feel real, and Lynn did this, in my opinion, regarding the mystery level of this piece of work.

However, what I didn't find realistic was the dialogue for the young men in the novel. I don't think the dialogue sounded "real" enough. It felt forced and sort of outdated for the times.

Aside from the dialogue, I quite enjoyed the story. I found it very entertaining and addictive.

**I received an ARC for a fair, honest, and unbiased review.**

This is an intriguing story that hooked me from the first page! I loved it!

Zeke Clay is a very likeable character, who has not had the best of luck in his life. He is a very honest and honourable man. I liked him very much!

This is a fantastic gothic Christian paranormal mystery/suspense novel! I must admit that I am not an overly religious person (although I do believe that there is a higher power "out there", watching over us), so I was a bit worried about whether this book would be "preachy". I am happy to say that it is most definitely not preachy! However, it does focus on one passage in the bible - The Jabez Prayer. I was most intrigued with the mystery of the wishing well curse, and how the Prayer was used in the story. The author blended together a mix of myth and history, along with a dash of religion, to create a suspenseful and exciting read that had me enthralled! I loved the flow of the story, and the ending made me want to believe in destiny; I love a happy ending, and the author didn't disappoint!

Lynn Donovan has written an exciting Christian paranormal mystery/suspense novel with a hint of romance that was pretty fast paced, so I never felt bored - it was an extremely enjoyable read! I highly recommend this book if you love Christian or Paranormal Romance genres. - Lynn Worton
